Openings for Two Female Writers on Wednesday Mornings

Submitted By: writingaliveworkshops@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
Two Openings for Writers at Any Level of Experience

Let your voice soar on the currents of the summer wind! Join us for a brand new Wednesday Morning Writing Alive! Workshop, a place to play with the authenticity of your voice in the presence of others who love words and meaning, form and structure as much as you do! Find your flock — and fly!

Writing Alive! Workshops have been offered on the North Coast of Oregon since April 2015. Our days of meeting at The Center for Contemplative Arts came to end, and now we meet on Zoom.

I am trained to facilitate writing workshops in the style of The Amherst Method for Writers and Artists, an approach I love for its positive focus and for the extra distance it provides writers who want to delve into challenging, authentic material without getting mired in a “therapy trap.” We write to 2-4 prompts during each 2-1/2 hour weekly workshop. We include a maximum of 5 writers plus the facilitator. In this model, the facilitator keeps the process on track while also writing to the prompts and sharing her own writing, just as other participants do, keeping the hierarchy “flat” and equal. Writers choose their genre, decide whether to write “on-prompt” or “off-prompt,” always have a standing invitation to read aloud and always an option to pass. This is a setting for writers bringing works-in-progress and also for those jumping in to begin, or complete, a memoir, group of short stories or to explore writing with a workshop for the very first time.

If you are longing for a writing community filled with writers capable of offering thoughtful feedback, if you are ready to receive positive feedback for your work, if you are in search of a group of like-minded writers to hold you accountable to yourself and bring out your best, Writing Alive! Workshops is for you!

We’re just around the corner — on Zoom. (And if your niece in Olympia or your daughter in Chicago or your Mom or Grammy on Martha’s Vineyard is looking for us, please let them know how to find us! Send them this contact and we’ll take care of the rest: writingaliveworkshops@gmail.com.)

We are seeking one or two new writers for a brand new Wednesday Morning Workshop. Three writers are signed up — from Oregon, from Nova Scotia, from Washington, D.C. This workshop will definitely “make.” Let us know if you’d like to join us.

Our dates are July 27 + Aug 3, 10, 17. This particular workshop is focused for women only.

Cannon Beach Arts Association Workshop

Rope Mat Making
Instructor: Greg Neitzel
Time: 10 – 1:00PM
Location: Cannon Beach History Center.
Cost: $50 Members
$60 Non-Members

*Materials Included

In the era of wooden boats and iron men “chafing mats” were woven out of repurposed fishing line and placed on the wooden deck in high traffic areas to reduce wear and tear on the wooden deck. I learned how to craft them when I worked on the Barracuda fishing out of Astoria. Oregon in 1973.I conduct workshops around the area and welcome Eager Beaver Weavers to my studio in Svensen, Oregon.All the repurposed line is from the commercial fishing fleet of crabbers and long liners fishing in the Pacific ocean and serves as the connection between the incredible bounty of our oceansand the hardworking hands that harvest it each year. The line is imbued with great fish karma.

Workshop requirements:

-be able to stand and move around for several hours

-neatly trimmed fingernails

-the ability to hammer a nail straight without hitting your thumb

-spatial intelligence

-concentration

-a certain amount of obsessive/compulsive DNA

-pride in one’s craft

Steele began her musical journey in Jones, Oklahoma at age 13, singing her first solo in church.

She’s since become a staple of the Portland blues, gospel and soul scenes. Steele was named “Best Female Vocalist” by the Cascade Blues Association in back-to-back years of 2016-17.

Steele is also the musical director of the nonprofit Portland Interfaith Gospel Choir and Portland Center for Spiritual Living.

Rainy Day Village Picnic and Town Hall in the Park

Please join us TOMORROW Saturday, July 9th at 11:00 at Nehalem City Park, 12705 Hugo Street, for a Town Hall and Picnic. Let’s get together to eat, socialize, and talk about the future of Rainy Day Village. Bring a picnic and a chair or a blanket and visit with old friends and make some new ones. Treats provided! At 12:00 there will be a conversation about where Rainy Day Village can go from here.

Please RSVP to rainydayvillage@gmail.com. Please come even if you don’t RSVP!

And Save the Date: July 16th will be a follow up meeting at 2:00 at the same place: Nehalem City Park (and with more treats!) Come and help plan the future of Rainy Day Village in more detail.

Rainy Day Village (RDV) is part of the Village Movement which started in Boston over 20 years ago to create a new model for aging and ways to support older adults who desire to remain in their homes, allowing them to stay active and engaged in their communities. A local group began meeting in 2017 to discuss how this movement might support and enrich lives on the northern Oregon coast. We soon realized that rather than focus efforts on creating a local non-profit, it would be advantageous to join an existing village organization. In early 2019, RDV became the 11th village under Villages Northwest, “hub and spoke” model operating in the Portland area. As a spoke we have access to the considerable experience of Villages NW to help build RDV. For more about Villages NW go to www.villagesnw.org. For more information about the Village Movement go to Village to Village Network www.vtvnetwork.org

Robust efforts were made to build Rainy Day Village by constructing the foundation that would be needed to have volunteers provide services for paying members and even more importantly to create a vibrant network of community connections: people living their lives with pride, grace and independence in safe, healthy and socially connected ways. The 20 year history of the Village movement has shown that the relationships built among villagers has added depth and meaning to people’s lives way beyond the help they receive with daily chores.

RDV was poised to open with members and volunteers in May 2020. Unfortunately, the launch date has been postponed indefinitely, due to COVID. Since the start of the pandemic RDV has been in a holding pattern.

The Steering Committee has decided it’s time to assess where we are going and hope that interested parties will attend one or both of the upcoming meetings to help plan the future of Rainy Day Village on the North Oregon Coast.

Kathryn Claire & Margot Merah At Wild Manzanita

Submitted By: wildmanzanita@yahoo.com – Click to email about this post
!!!JUST 3 DAYS LEFT!!!! Music has a way of bringing people together in unexpected ways. That is definitely the case for Kathryn Claire and Margot Merah. Growing up on opposite sides of the world, there is a good chance they would never have met. And yet they did in the fall of 2013 in a small Irish pub in Amsterdam. The musical connection was instant. A love for songwriting, traditional music, folk songs and harmony singing not only brought them together: it brought them all over the globe. This summer they will be touring the Pacific Northwest.

Portland, OR based musician Kathryn Claire weaves together stories and melodies rooted in her classical and traditional musical background while infusing each song and composition with an energy and electricity that is palpable. Honest and poetic writing, crystalline vocals, impassioned violin compositions, and an ability to move seamlessly across genres, are the hallmark of Kathryn Claire’s original and diverse sound.

Telling stories is what the folk tradition is all about and it is what Dutch singer and songwriter Margot Merah loves to do. Margot’s music is comforting, hopeful and melancholic. Her songs explore stories about life, simple and small with an eye for detail as well as the bigger picture. Margot’s innate musicality and sense of harmony and rhythm allow her to work as both a solo artist and consummate collaborator.

After they met in 2013, Kathryn opened for The Lasses, a folk duo that features Margot Merah and Sophie Janna. The three musicians connected instantly and went on to tour in Europe, the US and Japan. Since that time, Kathryn and Margot have toured extensively together and with different projects; their music taking them around the world.

After two and a half years apart, the two are now reuniting in the Pacific Northwest for a tour featuring original and traditional songs and instrumentals along with their favorite covers. Between these two multi-instrumentalists, they will feature guitar, fiddle, ukulele, bodhran, harmonica and breathtaking vocal harmonies.
